We’ve made this video to show you how to fix the ‘Can’t Open File’ error on Google Chrome when downloading .apk files on Android.

This tutorial works not just for the FrostWire installer but for any app installer (.apk file) you may have had to download from a website, and it works for every Android phone or tablet.

There’s no reason why Google Chrome should be blocking the installation of .apk’s with their browser which happens to be the default of most phones out there, any app can handle opening .apk files, Google has simply decided to have more control of the android ecosystem and is trying to force everyone to use their Google Play market.

If things keep going this way, Google will be able to censor app developers completely if apps…

Cancer patient receives 3D printed ribs in world-first surgery

CSIROscope Blog

The sternum (the central piece) and the rib cages emanating from it, have been designed using precise scans to perfectly fit in the patient's chest after he had sections removed. 3D printed sternum: The ‘chest’ story you’ll hear all week. Image credit: Anatomics

A Spanish cancer patient has received a 3D printed titanium sternum and rib cage designed and manufactured right here in Australia.

Suffering from a chest wall sarcoma (a type of cancerous tumour that grows, in this instance, around the rib cage), the 54 year old man needed his sternum and a portion of his rib cage replaced. This part of the chest is notoriously tricky to recreate with prosthetics, due to the complex geometry and design required for each patient. So the patient’s surgical team determined that a fully customisable 3D printed sternum and rib cage was the best option.

Here's how the 3D printed sternum and rib cage fit inside the patient's body. Here’s how the 3D printed sternum and rib cage fit inside the patient’s body.

That’s when they turned to Melbourne-based medical device company Anatomics, who designed and manufactured the implant utilising our 3D printing facility, Lab 22.

This new release has a lot of fixes (EZTV, BtJunkie search, torrents issues, crash on audio player), also we upgraded Picasso library for image caching and did a significant update to the jlibtorrent library that improves memory handling and avoids a DDoS attack on the network.

The update is currently being rolled out in stages to a small percentage of users on Google Play so that we can fix any newly introduced bug without impacting the majority of users.

#IWasThinking S01E04 Making our own “Secret” Society

Thanks for watching! Unlike Uslar Pietri’s “Invisible Friends” on YouTube you don’t have to be invisible! Send a video response or leave a comment below.

On this episode
Wish I was part of a secret society, a great unconditional support network.

Let’s form our own, only smart folks looking to change the world for the better should be in. Thoughts about free energy from the earth’s magnetic field (what would’ve Tesla done if he had wikipedia). Thanks to the 60 to 90 people who watch, I’m not talking to an empty room, yay.

Come to think about it, some religions are just that (powerful brotherhoods in the open), they just have a mythical pretext to come together.

#IWasThinking S01E03: Why philosophy and questioning our reality is important

We should also be looking for the next leap in philosophy trends, we need new forms of interpreting reality to have a leap in technological progress. (just the way the introduction of “science” (scientific method, testability) propelled us to the world in which we are now)

Learning and living philosophy is REALLY important. Just as we evolve in every other knowledge field, we must evolve as philosophers. When some philosophers decided that reality had to be questioned (tested) we came up with the scientific method, which brought about more innovation in the last 200 years than in thousands before it. Just because we started questioning our reality differently than before (like shit was made by god and stuff, we learned stars where massive balls of hydrogen and helium collapsing into heavier elements which make up most of what you and I are made of.

What will the next breakthrough in philosophy bring to the aid of our creativity?

#IWasThinking E01S02: American Nutritional trends and how they will affect our future

Something as simple as the invention and adoption of bread was a key driver for the foundations of agriculture and the evolution of civilization.

I think the outlook of the future is not so good when we look at the eating habits of the average american person, which seems to be similar to other consumption habits in American society. We eat crap, we buy crap, we watch crap, we listen to crap, we waste time on stupid things, the top search trends on Google show that americans just care about gossip and vanal things.

If the future of this country depends on the majority of the people in it (and not in a brilliant few that drive innovation and cannibalize on the majority), I think american supremacy has its days numbered, not to mention that we’re going to keep spending a lot of money on healthcare thanks to our eating habits.

#IWasThinking E01S01: The complexity of the world depends on human interaction.

I suck at small talk, I like to think about other things, all my true friends aren’t here so I thought I might as well meet some other like minded people by recording a series of thought starters.

On this first episode I talk about realizing that the complexity of the world depends directly on the level of interactions that humans have with each other. The more of us that can do more specialized things, when working together bring technology forward. Therefore, think of all the things that will come out as the internet empowers us to work together on all fields of human knowledge.

If I get enough traction the plan is to shoot outside, in HD, edit to minimize playback time and save you time, and basically produce a whole season (22 episodes each)
